The two examples of automatic stabilizers are:
Option 'a' greater claims on the federal unemployment compensation program.
Option 'C' tax increases when incomes rise during an expansion.
Option ''a' is correct because as the unemployment rises, more people starts receiving unemployment benefits and as the employment rises during expansion, less people will be given unemployment benefit.
